Unfriendly owner
I had the pleasure to meet the owners and Maritzza was an Angel but her husband is not nice at all and for that reason provably will not stay there and will not recommend this hotel, Zoila and Jorge were very nice people.

Safe, Comfortable Choice near Barrio Escalante
I would definitely stay here again, although the first impression from the front desk clerk was a little to be desired. All the other members of staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The included breakfast in the morning was DELICIOUS and the room was simple and clean. The interior has a nice courtyard area and I can see feeling very comfortable here for a long term stay.

Super cute lobby and courtyard
The hotels in the area are relatively inexpensive, and this was right in line. We had a clean room with 3 real beds, TV and wifi. There was a compact breakfast in stunning courtyard garden, for a very low additional price. It is a smaller hotel and the staff are super nice; you do need to be buzzed in each time. The restaurant scene nearby has a lot of choices. We ate well at a vegetarian one. The street and the train tracks are RIGHT there, so that might be a noise factor for some people. All in all, a nice home base for a couple days visiting in town.
